“It is not only a work of colossal scholarship, it is the noblest literary memorial to ‘The Few’ yet published.” -Manchester Evening News
First published to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, After the Battle, plowed and entirely fresh furrow across the legendary field of human conflict to produce a book which has now come to be regarded as a memorial; in itself to ‘The Few’. Never before has such detailed coverage been given to the losses of either the Royal Air Force or the Luftwaffe. The graves of RAF aircrew that were killed have been listed, visited by the editorial team and photographed as a complete and lasting record of those that died. The pilots, their memorials, crashes and crash sites, and the aircraft that have survived are profusely illustrated. Twenty of the most famous fighter aerodomes have been explored and described as they were at the time and as they are today. Also included is a complete listing of ‘The Few’ – more than twenty-five years’ work by the late John Holloway.
The 16-page introductions to the Mk III/IV and Mk IV editions are available separately if required.
